Easter at The River Idle Benefice Churches

About 40 people gathered, a little bleary eyed, on Easter Sunday at 6.30am to celebrate what is now an annual event at Pusto Hill Farm. 

As dawn broke, we celebrated the joy of Easter morning, thinking about how Jesus rolls our stones away, singing and praying together whilst being immersed in a full sensory experience of new life, complete with the birds and cows joining in!

Afterwards, we were rewarded for our early rise with bacon and egg butties served by Jean Bere and her family as the joy continued. Life in all its fullness comes to mind.”

We also celebrated Easter with Messy church events at three of our churches on Good Friday, a contemplative Tenebrae service on Maundy Thursday at Holy Trinity Church, Everton,  waited with Jesus in our Hour at the Cross service on Good Friday at All Saints, Mattersey, then rounded off our Easter journey with a whole benefice family communion service at St Nicholas Church, Bawtry on Easter Sunday.
